Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag Remake Is Now In Active Development

Ubisoft may be working on a remake of “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag”. This speculation is based on recent findings from various Ubisoft Singapore developers’ LinkedIn profiles, which suggest they’ve been working on an “unannounced Assassin’s Creed project” since last September.

Known for its work on the pirate-themed MMO, Skull and Bones, Ubisoft Singapore is a fitting choice for this endeavor. The original Black Flag game is renowned for its open seas and pirate gameplay.

Released over a decade ago, Black Flag is one of the most acclaimed entries in the Assassin’s Creed series and one of the best pirate games ever made. The prospect of revisiting this beloved world with modern technology and gaming advancements has excited the fanbase.

Rumors about this remake first emerged last year, suggesting that it was in the earliest stages of development. If these rumors are accurate, and the game has been in development since September 2023, it suggests that the project might still be a few years away from release.

A remake of Black Flag makes financial sense for Ubisoft due to the game’s enduring popularity within the Assassin’s Creed community and the shift in the series towards RPG elements. This has left fans yearning for a return to the series’ roots, making Black Flag a safer bet for a remake.

Ubisoft Singapore could potentially combine Black Flag and Rogue, similar to The Rebel Collection release for the Switch. This would be a dream come true for fans, as Black Flag and Rogue are considered the last time when Assassin’s Creed’s stealth gameplay and open-world setting meshed perfectly together.
